Egypt Station Out Now on Capitol Records
LAS VEGAS (January 15, 2019) – In the wake of the triumphant headlining stand at the Austin City Limits festival that the Austin American Statesman called, “A Marathon to Remember Forever,” Paul McCartney has added yet another show to the upcoming U.S. leg of his new “FRESHEN UP” tour. The newly confirmed Saturday, June 29 show at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas is the newest addition to Paul’s first extended stateside run since the “One On One Tour” that played to some 2 million fans around the world during 2016 and 2017.
The “FRESHEN UP” tour is Paul’s first outing following the release of his No. 1 charting album, Egypt Station, released September 7 on Capitol Records to stellar reviews. Rolling Stone raved, “Macca keeps adding new gems to his songbook, with nothing to prove except he’s the only genius who can do this…And, oh yeah — in his spare time, he happens to still be the greatest live performer on Earth,” while Entertainment Weekly described the album as “the still-vital life force of a superstar who has been there and everywhere and is glad just to be here now.”
The Paul McCartney live experience is everything any music lover could ever want from a show: nearly three hours nightly of the greatest moments from the last 50 years of music, dozens of songs from Paul’s solo, Wings, and of course, The Beatles catalogues that have formed the soundtracks of our lives.
Paul and his band have played an unparalleled range of venues and locations throughout the Americas, the UK, Europe, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and all points in between. Among them, the exterior of the Coliseum in Rome; Moscow’s Red Square; Buckingham Palace; The White House; a free show in Mexico for more than 400,000 people; the last show ever at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park where The Beatles played their final concert in 1966; a 2016 week in the California desert that included two headlining sets at the historic ’Desert Trip’ festival; a jam-packed club gig for a few hundred lucky fans at Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace; and one live performance that was broadcast into space featuring Paul’s band of the last 15+ years – Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), Rusty Anderson (guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (drums). Paul and his team are constantly upgrading state-of-the-art audio and video technology into the live shows that ensures an unforgettable experience from every seat in the house making a Paul McCartney concert never anything short of life-changing.
